Do you realise that Israel is consistently in breach of UN law, resolutions and regulations? Does it matter when its Israel?
your elected leader G.W. Bush came to power by increasing state killings
Indeed Zionism should collapse as it is racist in it's very nature. In Israel, genetics defines your fate. That is the very definition of Racism. That does not mean that Israel should disappear, more that it should abide by international laws including the Geneva Conventions, end the illegal occupation, and end the illegal settlements. This is what Ahmadinejad was referring to.
"Ahmadinejad did not say he was going to 'wipe Israel off the map' because no such idiom exists in Persian". Instead, "He did say he hoped its regime, i.e., a Jewish-Zionist state occupying Jerusalem, would collapse."

Only $3 billion USD? That is less than I thought, but still too much for me to take. Do you have a link for that number or something that I can reference?

Sorry, but I have to laugh at this one.
Now that's out of my system.
Yeah, they have some more tech and maybe some more hardened troops that won't turn in the face of the free world, but they're just like the others. They will fall.
The US should stay out of this one. Israel has more than enough technology and people to go in there and wipe some crap out. The US/NATO should slap down any of the others who move in and try to attack Israel from behind while they're at war.
Iran, China and Russia have just signed a treaty to cover each others backs...Iran has their backup too.

Sidenote: he never once called for israel to be wiped off the map...do your homework and get the true translation of what he said.
Now - we get sucked into a massive war - the people of the US suddenly find that jobs are open for helping to construct tanks, planes, ships - weapons, ammunition, uniforms. Suddenly - everyone has jobs again. People have jobs so they get money - the mills and plants have workers and are producing, so they get contracts from the government.

ok my freind, Im not a economist either , but we both have common sense.
How good has the Iraq war been to the US , 2 billion a week
A modern war , unlike ww2, doesnt need factories turning out tanks, ammo, uniforms, etc, all that stuff is already made and stockpiled
All the military, army , airforce are already there trained and ready
all thats left is the cost of maintaining your troops abroad, current 2 bil a week in Iraq

I wouldn't want to live in the middle east. I think that Obama should encourage all Israelis to move to some other country and let the Palestinians have the whole area.
